This morning the United States woke up to the devastating news of a shooting at a midnight screening of the greatly anticipated 'The Dark Knight Rises,' in Aurora, Colo. Stars like Hot Chelle Rae, Janelle Monae and Haley Williams of Paramore took to Twitter to share their grief and disbelief of the event.

According to ScreenCrush, at least 12 people have been killed and more than 50 have been injured. The alleged gunman, James Holmes, threw tear gas into the crowd and then opened fire with a rifle and a handgun. The most recent reports say that the victims ranged from 6 to 31 years of age. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims, their families and the community of Aurora.
